T1, m and  where the temperature gradient dT/dx = 0. Show that the
foregoing temperature distribution reduces to Eq. (4.92) when the value of T2
is such that dT/dx = 0 at x =t .

In a cryogenics multifluid heat exchanger, offset strip fins
are generally used between plates, In neighboring channels, different fluids
with different heat transfer coefficients and temperature differences (Th
-Tc) flow. Consider a typical fin of length  as shown in Fig. P4.5.
Derive the temperature distribution in this fin as follows.
